2nd house

The 2nd house is the first succedent house. This house is about maintaining and rooting the energy from the first house in the material world. The natural sign, element, and modality for the second house are, to start Taurus which is a feminine sign ruled by Venus. The natural element of the second house is earth, and the modality associated with the 2nd house is fixed.

With this house being naturally Venus ruled think pleasure, think values, harmony, and beauty. Then, use that those words and apply them to what you can taste touch see and smell. This Venusian house rules over your money how you get and preserve things of value for you. It is good to know Venus doesn’t have emotions, Venus here and in her other house is purely black and white, practical, hedonistic, and unmoving.

As the first earth house is about maintaining, improving, and enriching your personal earthly reality. Planets here attribute to how you go about doing so I will give a brief run through of the personal planets in the second house. With the sun here your ego focus on material reality. Material stability, riches, sensuality, and you can be prone to hedonism the Sun in the second house acts a bit like a Taurus Sun. Also, someone with a Sun in the second house can be like someone with Sun conjunct Venus they could be beautiful or attracted to Venusian careers and lifestyles.

The Moon in the second house has an earth tint to it. The moon here is also like a Moon/Venus conjunction where there are constant ebbs and flows concerning 2nd house thing i.e., what your value, or getting money. Your inner world and emotions are connected to your material reality. You are also slow to change emotionally because of the earthiness of this house.

Mercury in the 2nd house shows someone who can more easily gain skills and acquire knowledge with money, things of value, gaining possessions, etc. Mercury in the second makes pretty good business people as far as getting and maintaining material stability and wealth. This is also kin to having Mercury conjunct Venus. You may have a nice singing voice or can earn income via writing, acting, using your voice and having a podcast or something of the like. Mercury in this house makes one curious when it comes to exploring all that this house has to offer.

Venus in the second house makes someone who is natural with access to quality possessions and maintaining personal values. The only thing to watch for going off the deep end with the sensual aspects of life.

Mars in the Second house something that could cause problems. Mars is an aggressive go-getter. When it comes to money, you should be an aggressive go-getter or keep ing it could be like a fight you are always trying to win. So take the initiative to learn about what you truly value, how money and material assets work. Though, sensually this is a magnetic pair. Mars in the Second is like having Mar/Venus conjunction.

The second house is essential to living. If you don’t have planets here doesn’t mean you can ignore your second house. Learn about the location of the second house lord by finding the sign in that house. What you value and having a sense of stability is how you can develop spiritually. Don’t listen to those who say the material plane is not needed. If it weren’t needed you would not be here. The material and spiritual are one and the same. Take care and love yourself. Know your value and worth. Be as stubborn as a bull and refuse to move against what you value.

First House in astrology, Houses!

First House in astrology

The first astrological house is an angular house. This is the native to the zodiac Ares and is ruled by Mars. The element associated with the first house is fire. The first house is the house of self and where we can find the ascendant. The ascendant in a natal chart is the sign that was rising on the horizon during the time of birth, and it directs a person’s life path.

Planets in the first house attribute to your personality, and your first impression of others. The sign rising creates the overall mask of who you are. The element of the rising sign is the element you present to the world first. For example, if you have an earth sign in the rising sign, then your go-to element is earth. Your personality would be defined as practical, down to earth, you are seen as a sensual person, material stability and luxury are essential for you. I’ll continue on with the elements in the rising… If the sign of your rising is a fire sign then you are more inclined with being self-centered (this is not all bad), vibrant, possibility temperamental, having a child-like wonder and air, personal freedom is one of your focus.

With a water sign as the rising, you’ll have a knack for understanding and manipulating other’s emotions, you can reflect what others feel back to them if need be. Security is prominent in your life, your mother and family will have a significant impact on your personality. For air signs as the rising your personality focus on mental aspects, relationships and communicating with others are essential. Being social is a must. These rising are logic centered and are more inclined to explore social boundaries.

As for the Personal Planets in the 1st house. It is like having a Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars conjunct with Mars. The Planets become lord of your chart and aspects you closely identify with.  Sun in the 1st house is for leaders though who will not allow anyone else put out there shine. They are conscious of what others see of them and their first impression. Sun here is like an Aries sun. My advice to allow them to be them. Getting in their way will be a mistake.

With the Moon here, your emotions are apparent, woman and your mother are important influencers for good or bad in your life. This is close to having an Aries moon or a Moon/Mars conjunction. Someone with the moon in the first house is likely to have a bit of a temper, combative, or someone who leads their life with emotions or a mother who is like that. You can reflect what others feel with this placement. The closer the moon is to the ascendant the more prevalent this is.

Mercury here leads you to be talkative and a smarty pants. Someone with this placement will have a quick mind and a sharp tongue with multiple interests and skills. Though because this is like having a Mercury/Mars conjunction it makes you ruthless when in an argument. I personally would not want trade words with this person.

Venus here makes some level of your personality diplomatic. You can be physically attractive in some way, or artistically inclined. This planet allows balance in the native life and nature. Favorable, because Venus is about money, situations flow into this Persons life. This is relatable to having Venus/Mar conjunction possibly making someone passive aggressive.

Mars in comfortable here. This is one of the best places for Mars. The planet makes you active here, giving you the energy to stand up for yourself. This makes you act bolder than any other planet, except for the Sun. Most people with Mars in the first require physical exertion like running, jogging, weight lifting, martial arts, etc. The closer Mars is to the ascendant the stronger its influence on the native’s personality.

You can break down the meaning of someones rising sign with all the elements, modalities, or gender polarities.

Saturn

Saturn is a fantastic planet. It is the last planet visible to the naked eye before the solar system gives way to darkness. Saturn weighs the least of all the worlds in the solar system, with 62 known moons, and beautiful rings. It takes Saturn about 29 years for this planet it orbits the Sun completing the zodiac wheel lasting in a sign for 2 1/2 depending on the motion of this planet. Meaning if Saturn is in the process of going into or out of retrograde, is retrograde, or direct.

Saturn rules two sings Capricorn the feminine side, and Aquarius the masculine side. With the sign rulership of Saturn, you can see how this planet is about learning and working within your boundaries to attain what you want in this world ( Capricorn), and pushing your limits, experimenting with the environment around you to gain more in life( Aquarius ). Saturn has two modes attributed to it, cardinal and fixed. Meaning Saturn is about starting, or taking responsibility, and maintaining the fruits of your efforts. The elements that go well with Saturn are Earth and Air showing how it is about stability and, in a detached way, progression. The houses Saturn rules are the 10th, challenging of reputation, social status, career, and legacy.  The 11th house is of hopes and wishes, gains, networking, and society. This planet is exalted in Libra and debilitated in Aries.

With Saturn in astrology, you have to research to understand what it is doing in a natal chart. Most believe this planet is about Restriction, boundaries, limits and responsibilities and nothing more. But, Saturn also represents the highest place in the natal chart, karma as in the result of your efforts and reaping what you sow, time, control and material prosperity. Saturn rules the physical world and is known as Alpha and Omega. This planet also has more than one symbol. The well known Rx is another Saturnian symbol. Saturn lends its energy to retrograde planets. It is the reason why you are going over and over again with lessons concerning those planets and is the reason why retrograde planets are so tricky to understand.  After your Saturn return, an entire topic on its own, the experiences of your retrograde planets becomes easier.

Unlike other planets, Saturn as two planets opposing it- the Sun and Moon. The Sun and Moon are personal, insular, representing the Spirit and soul, the ego and emotions. Saturn is the antithesis of that. It is about the harsh outer world pushing the boundaries of the ego ( seen in the Leo/Aquarius dynamic), as well as controlling and guarding your emotions and soul (seen within the relationship between Cancer and Capricorn).

Metaphysically Saturn Rules over Saturday and its metal is lead. Saturnian gods deals with reaping what you sow and harvesting, karma, time, stability, effort, and wisdom. Saturning gods are Cronos, Saturn, and Shani.
